Encaustic Painting Exhibition
You’ve heard of encaustic painting – but what is it?  Visit the Thousand Oaks Community Gallery Oct 17-31 to experience the exciting world of encaustic!  This exhibit showcases the recent emergence of encaustic as a modern medium in the art world of today.

Encaustic is the earliest known form of painting that predates oil, fresco, tempera, and was first used by the Greeks over 2000 years ago.  The contemporary artists working in this ancient form of painting use multiple layers of molten bee’s wax mixed with a natural tree resin and pigments fused to a substrate.  The subject matter and techniques vary widely from traditional representational imagery to wild and whimsical abstraction to free standing sculptures. Encaustic components include; paper, fabric, wood, string, traditional fine art supplies and a myriad of found objects.   Come see all the possibilities!
